Builder of Boats For Crewed Catamaran Charters Turns 30

Posted on

While the recent Paris boat show was an opportunity for bareboat yacht charter lovers to discover the new Lagoon catamaran 39, a more important milestone was celebrated – the 30th birthday of Lagoon Catamarans.
The builder celebrated their shipbuilding birthday at the French show, which ran from December 7 to 15.
The first Lagoon catamaran model was delivered in 1987.  Now, over 3,000 Lagoon catamarans have splashed down around the world. 
lagoon catamaran sailing yacht charter magazine bareboat sailboat birthday celebration
For three decades, the company has been a leader in design innovation. A few examples:
1997
Lagoon invents vertical windows for the Lagoon 410 catamaran, adding welcoming light and a feeling of more volume.
2004
No one had ever seen or heard of a flybridge on a sailing catamaran.  That is, until Lagoon installed one. Now, a decade later, all Lagoons 45’ and larger are equipped with a flybridge.
2006  
The first hybrid-powered cruising catamaran is introduced to the market – the Lagoon 420.
2009  
The Lagoon 620, the benchmark for crewed catamaran charters was introduced. Ask any charter broker their preferred vessels for a Virgin Islands yacht charter vacation, and they will probably point to Lagoon 620 sail catamaran AVALON and luxury sailing catamaran CROCODILE DADDY
2013  
The new Lagoon 39 and 52 models, featuring innovation by VPLP naval architects, have the masts pushed back aft for comfort, performance, and easy handling. 

Happy 30th birthday, Lagoon!  Thank you for all that you’ve done for the catamaran charter industry — here’s to another 30 years.

===========================================

Come explore the Virgin islands this winter from the comfort of the wide deck of a crewed catamaran yacht.  For more information, contact 1-800 Yacht Charters at https://www.1800yachtcharters.com/book-now-contact-us/.

Famous Superyacht Owner Says He Makes Stupid Money

Posted on

Johnny Depp vanity fair stupid money 300 million dollars luxury sailing yacht charter vajoliroja

A well known owner of a Mediterranean yacht charter vessel charges nearly €100,000 per week to rent his yacht, but it is his day job that brings him vast sums of money.

Actor Johnny Depp, owner of the 156′ motor yacht VAJOLIROJA, opens up about his staggering paychecks in the November issue of Vanity Fair magazine.

“Basically, if they’re going to pay me the stupid money right now, I’m going to take it,” he admits in the magazine article.  “I have to. I mean, it’s not for me. Do you know what I mean? At this point, it’s for my kids. It’s ridiculous, yeah, yeah. But ultimately is it for me? No. No. It’s for the kids.”

Depp has shot to the top of the list of Hollywood’s highest paid actors, thanks to the stellar success of Disney‘s Pirates of the Caribbean movie franchise.   While Depp is mum on the size of his Pirates “ransom,” a recent report puts his total take in the $300 million range, due to a gross-profit-sharing deal brokered with Disney. To date, the four-film franchise has tallied $3.7 billion in worldwide receipts, and Depp is slated to star in a 5th installment.

It’s believed Depp’s passion for the sea, and his purchase of a mega yacht charter vessel stems from his years of filming the Pirates movies in exotic locales such as the Bahamas.  His yacht, motor yacht VaJoLiRoJa — the boat’s clever name comes from combining the first few letters of each family member’s name, partner Vanessa Paradis, Johnny, and their kids, Lily-Rose and Jack — is a 156 foot yacht of distinctive character, inspired by the classic gentleman’s yachts of the 1930’s.

The lavishly-styled interior evokes the romance and glamour of a bygone era (with a few pirate-themed hints throughout).

============

Relive the Golden Era of yachting on board a classic yacht this winter.  Depp’s yacht VAJOLIROJA is available for hire in the Bahamas or St Martin, and joins another classic-style Caribbean charter yacht,
sail yacht GERMANIA NOVA.  In other destinations, classic-styled sail yacht  MONTIGNE is available in the Far East, and in the Mediterranean, sail yacht ATLANTIC and motor yacht CHRISTINA O are available this winter.  Contact 1-800 Yacht Charters at https://www.1800yachtcharters.com/book-now-contact-us/ to reserve your yacht today.

At the time of her launch in 2011, sail yacht SARISSA was the largest carbon sloop ever built in the Netherlands and remains as impressive today as the day she splashed down.

Designed by Bill Tripp with interior by Rhodes Young, sailing yacht SARISSA sleeps up to 10 guests in two double cabins, a triple cabin (best suited for children with an adjoining single nanny cabin), and a convertible office/cabin forward of the saloon.

Her Asia yacht charter scheduled itinerary includes:
• December to February – Thailand and Burma
• March and April – Indonesia (West Papua and Raja Ampat)
• June and July – Solomon Islands

The weekly charter rates for charter sailboat Sarissa are €115,000 high season and €105,000 low season.  For further details and a sample itinerary, contact 1-800 Yacht Charters for your free consultation.  1-800 Yacht Charters is the only superyacht charter company to offer a Best Price Guarantee, and a portion of your yacht charter fee is donated to a marine charity or to those in need in your area of charter, in your name.

Planning a Croatia Yacht Charter? Expect To Pay More

Posted on

In November, the Croatian government voted on a fiscal consolidation package to reduce the country’s deficit. One of the measures included an increased intermediate Value Added Tax (VAT, or PDV, as it is called in Croatia) rate from 10% to 13%.
Travelers organizing a yacht charter vacation in Croatia need to be aware of this increase, as the costs will certainly be passed along by the yacht owner to the charterer.
According to Jana Sheeder, a luxury yacht charter industry expert, other increases should be expected as well. 
“In each of the past three summer seasons, we have seen an increase in interest in Dalmatian yacht charter adventures in Croatia,” says Sheeder.  “We are advising our clients to budget not only for the increase in VAT, but also for the higher excise taxes on fuel that were approved in November.  In short, the cost to enjoy both a Croatia bareboat rental or a fully crewed yacht vacation will cost about 5% more in the summer of 2014.”

Trips to the Dalmatian Islands in Croatia now challenge locations in Italy and France as the most popular Mediterranean yacht charter destination. Wild and mostly uninhabited, many of the islands are environmentally protected as national parklands and offer a varied and diverse cruising ground for sail boat charters.
“Must-see” itinerary stops in Croatia include
  • Kornati National Park
  • The Town of Split, a UNESCO City
  • The Islands of Hvar, Brac, and Vis
  • Trogir, a World Heritage Organization City
  • Plitvice Lakes National Park (photo above)

Sailing Superyacht Salperton IV Launches in New Zealand

Posted on

UPDATE!   Sailing yacht SALPERTON IV is now named PALMIRA.  She was fully refit in 2017.
Built by Fitzroy Yachts, the sailing superyacht Salperton IV has recently been launched.  At 45 meters in length sailing yacht Salperton IV is the latest superyacht to be built by Fitzroy Yachts of New Zealand, being one meter longer than Salperton III at 44 meters.

Salperton IV sailboat


Fingers are crossed that the Mediterranean yacht charter fleet will soon welcome yacht Salperton IV to the family.  Earlier incarnations of Salperton have spent years delivering mega yacht charter holidays to customers around the world.  Two of the earlier vessels are still available for sail boat charters under the current names of Northern Spirit (37 meters) and Drumbeat (53 meters).

Sail boat charters are extremely popular in the Caribbean, and all eyes are upon this latest incarnation. The superyacht cost an estimated $30 million.  She is 215 tons, took two years to build, and is the eighth megayacht that Fitzroy has built in the past 12 years.
Accommodations include four en suite state rooms and three crew cabins. For extra luxury, she also has a gym and a spa pool.
260,000 hours have gone into the construction of the (hopefully soon-to-be) luxury sailing charter vessel.  She is fully air-conditioned, has her own sewage treatment station, can make 15 tons of water per day, carries 30 tons of fuel, and has a 850-horsepower Cat engine, in case there is no wind.
It is the second yacht the company has built for British owner, Barry Houghton.  The earlier Salperton III was launched in 2007, the company’s 10th anniversary, and won two international awards the next year.  The design concept for number IV was for a yacht which sails and performs even better than number III.
As with number III, Adam Lay Studio came back to create the yacht’s interior design work.
It has been reported that the yacht departed New Zealand today, with her owner onboard, for a three month Pacific cruise. The sailing yacht will then cruise the Caribbean, before heading up in the Mediterranean in the summer of 2010.
